August 27, 1918
On Monday, September 2, the following mixture of Mersey toppers will face a combined side of South Liverpool and Tranmere:
Mitchell; Longworth, Thompson; Fleetwood, W. Wadsworth, Mackinlay; H. Wadsworth, Jefferis, Bennett, Clennell, Schofield.
A hot combination that should draw a big crowd to see “strategy in football.”
